Back pain is a common injury that can cause great pain and interfere with the
daily functions of your life. Prior to the sudden onset of a back injury there
is generally a pre-existing weakness within the internal structure of the spine.
This weakness will then become vulnerable, triggering pain by the lifting of a
heavy object, a sudden, quick movement or the sitting in a position for too long
of a period.
Some causes for back pain include:
- Bulging and/or
- Muscle spasms
- Subluxations of the vertebrae
- Strain and/or injury to the muscles or ligaments supporting the back
- Small fractures to the spine from osteoporosis
Your chiropractor will
first assess your injury through a hands-on review then can treat your back
injury in a number of ways. Depending on the injury location, your chiropractor
may perform a chiropractic adjustment to improve functionality, reduce nerve
inflammation and restore range of motion in the back. Other techniques that can
be used include mobilization of the area, physical therapy modalities, exercises
and patient education to provide a comprehensive treatment approach.
